A new poster has been released for Eddie’s film Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them … looks awesome! I am so excited for this film!
E!Online has shared that Eddie & Hannah have welcomed their first daughter!
Congratulations Eddie & Hannah! Welcome Iris!
EDIT: Correction … it appears that the media has gotten her middle name wrongg … it is Iris Mary.
And baby makes three!
Eddie Redmayne and wife Hannah Bagshawe have welcomed their first child, a baby girl named Iris May Redmayne, E! News has confirmed. The couple announced her birth in the U.K. newspaper The Times. Iris was born Wednesday.
Redmayne and Bagshawe confirmed they were expecting at the Golden Globes in January.
“That is true!” the Oscar-winning actor said when Ryan Seacrest commented that there’s a baby on the way for the couple, before gifting them with onesies. One featured the words “You Should See My Crib,” while the other cheekily said, “Milking My 15 Minutes.”
“Thank you so much, Ryan!” a surprised and delighted Redmayne said, as Hannah laughed, calling the gifts “amazing!”
E! News learned in December that the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them star and Bagshawe were going to have a baby, only one year after they tied the knot in a private ceremony in England on Dec. 15, 2014.
Redmayne and Bagshawe began dating in January 2012 and got engaged in June 2014. Since then they have been pretty inseparable, as Bagshawe has been by Redmayne’s side throughout multiple awards seasons.
Eddie has participated in a new video from the Motor Neurone Disease Association which is released this month as part of MND Awareness Month.
Chris James, director of external affairs for the MND Association, said: “While Professor Stephen Hawking’s story is so very inspiring, the harsh truth is that most people with MND die less than two years after they’re diagnosed, and that’s a message this year’s Shortened Stories campaign is getting across very powerfully.
“With Eddie’s assistance and Robert’s wonderful video and poem, both specially recorded for our campaign, so many more people will realise exactly what a diagnosis of MND means.”
Found some additional stills from Eddie’s film The Danish Girl that I have now added to the gallery!
Eddie Redmayne may be known for his brilliant acting prowess across the globe but Hollywood star Ian McKellen has revealed that the actor had auditioned for a part in his 1995 movie Richard III, but did not get through.
McKellen co-wrote, co-produced and starred in titular role in the British drama film directed by Richard Loncraine.
Richard III was adapted from William Shakespeare’s play of the same name.
The 76-year-old actor, who was speaking at a special screening of the film here last evening, said choosing the perfect cast was a challenge and quipped that in the process he had missed casting The Theory of Everything star.
“We missed the chance, when we were auditioning little kids for the film… A little boy came along and I met him not long ago. He said we have met before. I said ‘oh really we did?’ He said yes sir I came and auditioned and you didn’t give me the part. So I happen to turn down Eddie Redmayne’s first job,” McKellen said.
The critically acclaimed movie stars Eddie Redmayne as Lili Elbe – a painter who was born male [with the name Einar Wegener] who goes on to become one of the first-known recipients of gender reassignment surgery. Directed by Tom Hooper – of The King’s Speech and Les Misérables – the movie traces Lili’s transition from artist Einar, and its effect on Einar’s wife Gerda, played by the incredible Alicia Vikander.
It’s a remarkable love story on the surface, with some powerful messages on equality, acceptance and gender identity bubbling under the surface. Speaking to GT ahead of the film’s release, Eddie Redmayne explained: “We need to break down prejudice, taboos and misconceptions.
“Society needs to understand the difficulties faced by trans people – and especially the amount of abuse and physical violence they’re often subjected to.”
To celebrate the release of this fantastic movie, we’ve got a very special behind the scenes clip for you, featuring Tom Hooper and Eddie Redmayne.
Deadline & Entertainment Weekly shares that Eddie has joined the cast for Early Man.
Eddie Redmayne will voice the lead character in the animated prehistoric comedy Early Man, Aardman Studios and StudioCanal announced Monday.
The Oscar winner is the first cast member revealed as production begins on the Nick Park-directed film.
Set at the dawn of time when prehistoric creatures and woolly mammoths roamed the earth, Early Man centers on Redmayne’s “plucky caveman” character, Dug, who, with his sidekick Hognob “unites his tribe against the mighty Bronze Age in a battle to beat them at their own game.”
“Not only is Eddie a joy to work with, his versatility and boundless energy have really helped to bring my new character to life,” Park said in Monday’s announcement. “He embodies the cheeky charm, fun and plucky wit of Dug and I’m sure he’ll get along brilliantly with Dug’s sidekick Hognob.”
Early Man marks Park’s first feature film since the Oscar-winning Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit. Aardman and StudioCanal previously teamed on Shaun the Sheep Movie, on which Park was an executive producer.
StudioCanal, which is co-financing the project, will distribute the film in the U.K., France, Germany, Australia, and New Zealand with a projected 2018 release date.
Redmayne will be seen next in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, arriving in theaters on Nov. 18.
